In one corner, we have the Range Rover Sport TD6. Under its hood sits a 3.0-liter turbodiesel six-cylinder engine that produces 254 horsepower and 440 pound-feet of torque. That peak torque, by the way, is available at just 1,750 rpm. This is a fun luxury workhorse should you venture on to a dusty path and beyond. It has all of the off-road tech and engineering to head into the woods for the weekend.
At the other end of the RR Sport spectrum sits the SVR badge-wearing truck. There’s no ticking diesel here. Instead, we’re working with a 575-horsepower supercharged V8. This Range Rover Sport hauls tremendous amounts of ass. There’s an insane wave of oppressively wonderful sound flowing out the rear. This is a war machine. Even if it’s one with nice leather on the inside and a top-tier sound system.
Land Rover has a Range Rover Sport for everyone (with enough cash to pay to play, of course). In between these two spectrum ends sit a handful more gas-powered options offering varying levels of power.
The only version missing for me? An off-road prepped version of the SVR-powered Range Rover Sport. Remove the low-hanging body bits, bolt on smaller wheels with chunky tires, and let’s have a go in the dirt with that one.
